RE: Paper cited in connection with Issue #26 (for ease of reference)

As promised at the meeting today, here's the formal reference:
Davidson, Alex, Ian Goldberg, Nick Sullivan, George Tankersley, and Filippo Valsorda. "Privacy pass: Bypassing internet challenges anonymously."
Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies
2018, no. 3 (2018): 164-180.

"Blinded tokens" appears to be the  key word they're using to describe the technology in general. It uses "oblivious pseudo-random functions" (also given as a key term in the paper).

I think this fulfills the action that I took at the meeting today on this point.
